Hmm, makes you think, doesn't it... I still have a pair of Pioneer TS-E1395's kicking around... Now if I were to mount that in a straight pipe.... That could just make the best speaker of the world then... ;-)

Look like car audio drivers to me, even if they are rather expensive.

My point exactly.... The Pioneers I refferred to are car audio 3-way speakers as well.

To be honest, it really did get me thinking. I am thinking of building a set of straight pipes for 8" full-range speakers anyway. And I could just build a set of pipes with the Pioneers in them as well...

They are car audio drivers, spot em a mile off, and while you can get some reasonable sound out of some car audio co-axial drivers, worlds best speakers, these ain't.

What an outragous scam

His frequency response graphs of 'normal' speakers - I refuse to belive that even the cheapest dirt speakers you can buy off the shelf have a >20dB 2-octave gap in the lower midrange.

no separate tweeter to cause parallax and crossover distortions (search the net - you won't find one!).
Umm, he obviously didn't search very hard. And he LIES - down the end of the page is a pic of the drive unit WITH A SEPARATE TWEETER and not only that, it's mounted off-centre!!!

They look nice, that's about it.

Default The creative genuis of scam artists

never cease to amaze me.

Best speaker? No way.

Most inventive scam I've seen in a long time? Quite possibly!

Give him a break guys. Do you know how expensive that 'mohagany' is and how hard it is to get hold of?

This is where my ethics get in the way of making some serious money.
